Since the municipalization of primary school in the early 1990s, has a fair education within and between muncipalities been discussed. The purpose of this case study is to examine Frasers (2011) equitable theory of economic redistribution, cultural recognition and political representation against the effects on fairness of municipalization. The aim is to see if the municipalities are responsible to freely allocate resources to primary schools, create equity between schools within and between municipalities, by answering questions about how resource allocation affects a fair education, the municipalities’ freedom to allocate resources based on local conditions, as well as if concerning local resource allocation to primary school is fair...

Since the municipalization of primary school in the early 1990s, has a fair education within and between muncipalities been discussed. The purpose of this case study is to examine Frasers (2011) equitable theory of economic redistribution, cultural recognition and political representation against the effects on fairness of municipalization. The aim is to see if the municipalities are responsible to freely allocate resources to primary schools, create equity between schools within and between municipalities, by answering questions about how resource allocation affects a fair education, the municipalities’ freedom to allocate resources based on local conditions, as well as if concerning local resource allocation to primary school is fair from Fraser’s perspective. The study is based on state public inquiries, reports and investigations of, for example, Swedish Governments Official Reports (SOU), Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SKL), National Agency for Education (Skolverket) and the Swedish Schools Inspectorate (Skolinspektionen) but also literature relating to equitable primary education. The analysis of the material based on Fraser’s theory shows that the municipalities’ freedom to allocate resources to primary schools do not create a fair education. Economic redistribution, cultural recognition and political representation are three dimensions which together, create an equal participation in social life. (Less)
